Embyr tends her tavern while keeping her dangerous parentage a secret, until she’s attacked by a hellhound and saved by one of the most feared men in history.
For the last eight hundred years, Ryder McLennon, the infamous leader of Death’s Horsemen, has used his army to hunt the vampire who killed his wife. He’s earned a reputation as a murderous madman. But in Embyr, he discovers something that could turn the tide of battle in his favor. Her control over fire can reduce an enemy to ash and her flippant disregard of him heats his blood in ways no one else ever has. She’s beautiful, powerful and completely different from her violence-loving brethren.
Embyr finds herself thrust into a war she wants no part of, targeted by a vicious vampire because of her cooperation with Ryder. As she learns to wield her demonic powers without letting the madness of her race overcome her, she also has to fight her attraction to a killer bent on her seduction.
For fans of steamy scenes, captivating kisses and alluring fantasy romance.
Me being a hopeless romantic, the synopsis for Fire’s Kiss really interested me and seemed like the typical fantasy romance that I’ve enjoyed in the past. I honestly didn’t expect to like it this much! I started reading it and literally didn’t want to put it down, it hooked me from the beginning and I managed to finish it within 24 hours, THAT’S how much I enjoyed it!
I don’t generally read books set in the past too much, I tend to get bored with the drawn out writing (unless it’s Shakespeare). I’m a modern kinda gal, but the old style world building teamed with hints of modern-day language worked really well together and kept me intrigued.
I enjoyed the relationship between Embyr and Ryder, it was by no means instantaneous love, maybe sexual attraction but I honestly can’t blame Embyr, Ryder is a beast! The relationship definitely developed over time, with many catty moments shared between the two.
It was about half way through the book til we got to the very obvious steamy scenes and the growing feelings. I liked that these were gradual and not the soul purpose of the book, there was definitely a story to be had and I think the author implemented a good mix of the two.
THERE ARE VAMPIRES! Yes I love me some vampires and I’m so happy to see them in this story. There was a variety of mythical creatures and even some magical mage’s included in this book, which I really liked and was delighted to see.
My heart was left wide open at times and fluttering at others and I really wanted to beat some sense into a certain demon! I loved this so much more than anticipated and look forward to Brittany’s future novels!
